Driver Support Information

There are two types of drivers compatible with Microsoft® Windows® 8/8.1.

right arrow Brother original driver
Brother original drivers are developed by Brother. These drivers have the full driver functionality with Brother features.

For the latest drivers, we recommend using the "Go" links in the chart below to take you to the download page for your model on the Brother Solutions Center.


right arrow Built-in driver
The built-in drivers are already included with Windows® 8/8.1 or are available through Windows® update. These drivers are also referred to as "in-box drivers" or "in-OS drivers". The built-in drivers support the basic functions of your Brother machine: printing and scanning *1.

For the built-in driver installation instructions and the supported functions, and procedure for printing and scanning *1 with the built-in driver, we recommend using the "Go" links in the chart below to take you to the product-specific FAQ on the Brother Solutions Center.

*1 Scanning may not be available depending on your Brother machine, method of connection and Windows® 8/8.1 version. See the product-specific FAQ.
